As we are exploring different materials and their properties, we decided to investigate how different materials would react to water.
Each team chose four different samples of material, ranging from tissue paper, to fabric, to plastic, to paper bags, and many more.
We had to attach each sample to a plastic cup with a rubber band. We then dropped 20 drops of water onto each material sample with an eye dropper, to see if the water would leak, soak or repel. And, of course we made predictions first!
There were lots of surprises in this lesson, and we learnt about the different materials, their uses and their properties.
